Ward B2 is a 24-bed, mixed-sex acute mental health ward. We provide care for individuals aged between 18-65 who are in crisis or need assessment and treatment for a mental health disorder/concern.
B2 has four dormitories (two male and two female) and four side rooms which are only used for male patients. There are communal areas within the ward and a female-only lounge.
Our team provides care and support for each patient on our ward and any support and reassurance that carers may need. You will have a weekly assessment with your consultant to discuss the plans for your future care and ultimate discharge. Nursing and medical care is available 24 hours a day.
A five-day activity programme has been designed to help you with your recovery. This is run by our occupational therapist and activity co-ordinator but also includes input from MIND, North Notts College and Nottinghamshire Healthcare's voluntary services. This ensures a wide range of activities are available.
Your length of admission will depend on your specific needs. We will keep you up to date on the care you need and when you are likely to be discharged. We look at all aspects of what you may need, including assessing your mental and physical health needs and offering support with any social, housing and benefit issues. We liaise closely with community teams and other agencies when planning care and discharge, to ensure all the necessary support is in place.
All admissions to the ward are facilitated by the Crisis Team. Referrals are made by healthcare professionals.
Monday - Friday: 5.30pm - 8.30pm
Saturday and Sunday: 11.00am - 8.00pm
